Born on July 12, 1903 in Chestertown, Maryland,
Valliant Byron lived nearly all of his 88 years on the Eastern Shore
of Maryland. Nearly 45 of those years were spent in the cabin he
built on San Domingo Creek near St. Michaels, Maryland. Following
Byron's death the house was saved from destruction thanks to the efforts
of Historic St. Michaels - Bay Hundred, the Talbot County Board of Education
and Pickering Creek Audubon Center.
After a three year journey, the cabin was relocated to Pickering Creek
where it is awaiting further preservation and restoration. Ultimately
the house will contain artifacts relating to Byron and will serve as a
classroom for outdoor education, literature and writing programs for the
community.You can help ensure that the Gilbert Byron House gets restored
for the community! For more information, please visit our Get
